.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...MUCH COOLER CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR ACROSS
THE SURF ZONE ON FRIDAY WITH HIGHS ONLY IN THE UPPER 40S. WINDS
WILL PREDOMINANTLY BE OUT OF THE NORTHEAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND
ALONG WITH MOSTLY CLOUDY TO OVERCAST SKIES. RAIN CHANCES WILL
RETURN SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY AS A COASTAL TROUGH DEVELOPS. HIGHS
WILL SLIGHTLY REBOUND INTO THE 50S THIS WEEKEND.

* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT SURF ZONE CONDITIONS ARE NOT
  EXPECTED TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.
  HOWEVER...LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS OFTEN OCCUR IN THE VICINITY
  OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
